  • "What a cottage, Spotlessly clean, Toasty warm, Well equipped,all your creature comforts."

    Beautiful location beautiful views,peace and quiet and lovely walks from your front door. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and the text to say the cottage was ready was very thoughtful. Amazing views one way to the lakes and the other way to Scotland, what more could you want. Silloth is a 2 minute drive away and has a lovely prom and a variety of shops.Well worth the drive from Bournemouth. We will be back. Peter October 21

  • "The king size bed really needs a firmer new mattress ."

    We had to sleep on the small pull out in the snug as it was so uncomfortable . It could also do with a larger saucepan and a new frying pan . Apart from that it was wonderful

    Lovely little touches like bread, eggs and milk on arrival. There were six adults all staying and we had more than enough room. A great base to travel to all the surrounding areas

  • "Marsh Villa is exceptional in every way!"

    We could easily live here permanently! The attention to detail in every aspect was spot on & the place was immaculately clean when we arrived. So well equipped that we didn't need to bring a lot of the things we brought with us. Welcome pack & products etc included: eggs, bread, small milk, range of tea/coffee/hot chocolate sachets, biscuits, dishwasher tablets for the week, washing up liquid, sponge, cleaning products, mop, Hoover, iron & board, fire making materials, tea towels, oven gloves, handwash at all sinks, loo roll, kitchen roll, mini toiletries, salt & pepper, scrabble, playing cards, dog crate, bedding & towels. The only thing that isn't available is a hair dryer - so you need to bring your own. The only very minor negative is that the bedroom curtains are not blackout curtains. Amazing walks from the doorstep & ideally located to walk or drive into Silloth- which we found to be well looked after & the people were really friendly. Silloth West beach is better for dog walking than Skinburness beach, however our dogs enjoyed both. We also enjoyed the beach at Allonby, a visit to Maryport (25 mins) & also to Derwent Water (about 50 min drive). We will definitely be recommending Marsh Villa to our friends & family. We would definitely return.

  • "The villa was very spacious, with plenty of facilities for storing things."

    This is especially important when you holiday in the winter and take more stuff with you. The place was very well decorated and furnished, and also very easy to keep clean too. Well stocked kitchen, and bathrooms. Comfortable bed, and good wifi availability. Only a couple of minor annoyances: steep stairs, with no real grab rail at the top, and downstairs shower a bit weak. But these were not serious!

  • "Extremely high end luxury cottage, real bonus for us during a cold crisp November was the log burner, so inviting each evening on returning to the property after a day of exploring local sites?"

    ! Property was spotlessly clean, the heating was on when we arrived late evening which made the cottage feel warm & welcoming. Kitchen was finished to a high standard with every utensil available for a variety of culinary uses. There was also a very thoughtfully prepared welcome pack with local produce, a very nice touch!

    Up to now we have never found a cottage that suited our requirements. However this time we were so pleased to find Marsh Villa.This is an exceptional cottage,with a well laid out interior.The living room and dining room were a good size,with a cosy fire,,plus efficient central heating throughout. The conservatory was a dream,and the binoculars came in very handy.If a quiet holiday with good walking and the Lake district within easy driving distance,is your kind of holiday,you will find it hard to beat.

  • "Marsh villa is in a beautiful cottage and location with lovely views of the marsh and Solway firth."

    The cottage was very comfortable and was a great based to explore the northern Lakes. The local town of Siloth has shops, pubs and a chip shop which I would recommend. Overall I would visit again due to its location and peaceful surrounding.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Marsh Villa."

    The villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay and more. It feels very spacious and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us and dog. The kitchen is very well equipped making preparing meals easy and we were left a lovely welcome pack that was much appreciated after the journey. The villa is within walking distance of the sea and Silloth is a good walk along the seafront or short drive away. The villa is very well equipped for dog visitors and the room at the back was perfect for our pup’s pen for nighttime and drying off, with direct access to the enclosed garden. Overall, lovely accommodation in a lovely, peaceful setting!

    If you turn left out of the cottage and walk to the end of the land and back up the beach on the other side it is a lovely peaceful 4K walk. The beach itself is 5 minutes walk from the cottage. We had a wonderful stay in the cottage and a week of walking. The Wheatsheaf in Abbeytown do really nice meals.

  • "Very pretty, comfortable cottage which was beautifully decorated for Christmas."

    Wonderful boot room for drying off wet dogs (and humans) and all other facilities were excellent. Good area for walking or touring the Lake District and west coast of Cumbria. The only tiny drawback was the steepness of the stairs but if you take care they are ok - don't think any elderly or infirm people could manage them though. Certainly one of the best equipped and thoughtfully decorated properties we've stayed in and we self-cater at least four times a year.

About the location

SILLOTH

Maryport 12 miles; Carlisle 23 miles.

The popular resort of Silloth in West Cumbria lies north of the Lake District on the shore of the Solway Firth. On the opposite shore lie the hills of Southern Galloway in Scotland and to the south Skiddaw and the Northern Fells can be seen. Silloth was renowned for its "invigorating air, temperate climate, airy streets, its promenade and beach". It has glorious sea and mountain views and the light and the sunsets are renowned. It was developed in the 1850s; the railway arrived in 1856, the docks were opened 3 years later. The Carr's biscuit factory flour mill opened in 1886. Silloth was for a time, one of the country’s premier seaside resorts. The town was laid out on a regular grid pattern and planned as a "health resort for the upper and middle classes". The streets running off the wide, tree lined, cobbled Criffel Street are all named after the rivers flowing into the Solway Firth. The 'Green', an ever present feature is 34 acres of open grassland and is communal space for all to enjoy. Silloth and Solway Golf Club, situated in the town is a championship course which is ranked No 1 by the National Club Golfer Magazine 2016 for both quality and value. There are superb walks, particularly along the coastline, west to Allonby and east to Grune Point. Birdwatching is ever present. Both the Lake District and the English Heritage site of Birdoswald Fort, Hadrian's Wall are an easy 40 minute drive away. With quiet country roads and the Cumbria Coastal Way this is an ideal location for cyclists and walkers.
